Setting Up SSO SAML 2.0 with G Suite

G Suite is a package of cloud-based services that can provide your company or school with a whole new way to work together online—not just using email and chat, but over video conferences, social media, real-time document collaborations, and more.
User can use their G Suite credentials to sign in to enterprise cloud applications via Single Sign-On (SSO). An identity and access management (IAM) service provides administrators with a single place to manage all users and cloud applications. You don't have to manage individual user IDs and passwords tied to individual cloud applications for each of your users. An IAM service provides your users with a unified sign-on across all their enterprise cloud applications.

This page describes how to add Sisense to G Suite and configure SSO-support with SAML 2.0.
Note: This page reflects a 3rd party’s application which may change. If the steps described here do not match what you see in your G Suite account, you can use the generic Sisense SAML documentation, along with the IdP’s documentation.
